pretty much says it all, I just can’t decide.
The yellow wood is much brighter and more innocent to my eyes. Goes well with an upbeat candy color. Besides, that happens to be what I did with my LPB. Though it might have gone the other way.
I built the one on the right.
Maple seemed to be the best choice. Neck is a standard Fender ‘51 ‘Fat U’ in lacquer.
However, on this Strat I’ve tried a few different necks and rosewood seemed to be the better option.
Same Strat body with Birdseye maple
Rosewood FTW. The green on the right could get away with maple. I'd still prefer rosewood for it. The lime-ier green on the left has to be rosewood.
Strats are different.
The Strat body is exactly the same colour as the Tele on the right (both MJT) Which is why it was posted with the two configurations for reference.
Maple! Do it.
Plus 1 on the maple ….it’s just better
I like the maple, but I love the body color! I need one.
Maple is usually always the right answer.
A screwdriver and a set of strings it can be either or.
The beauty of Strats and Teles. They’re like LEGO bricks.
maple - i like the sound as well as the look
I voted Maple but would qualify that as being roasted maple. Although, I would usually pick Rosewood but in this case roasted maple.
Birdseye maple has more of a tendency to be unstable unless it is roasted, so says John Suhr.
there are but two choices. One is maple. Also, maple.
If anyone else should ask, the answer is still maple.
Rosewood belongs to sunburst, LPB, surf green, but not candy apple, shell pink, lilac, the pastels, and such. Limited application for the telecaster. IMHO.
Rosewood (or other dark wood) for looks.
... or whatever you think will give you better sound and feel.
No wrong answer here.... but I'd go with the rosewood, myself.
